Spring Fling Blog Hop



Welcome to the highly anticipated Spring Fling DT Team-Up Blog Hop!!!

The 2 super talented design teams of Made Especially 4 You and Digi Darla have teamed up to display some amazing Spring themed projects for you today. If you came from Beckie's blog, you're on the right track!! If you just happened to pop by, you can start the hop HERE!

There are also some outstanding sponsors who have graciously offered up some grand prizes.


YOU MUST COMMENT ON EVERY STOP TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN. YOU WILL HAVE UNTIL SUNDAY, MARCH 18th TO HOP.


WINNERS WILL BE POST ON BOTH MADE ESPECIALLY 4 YOU AND DIGI DARLA ON TUESDAY, MARCH 20th.

A $20 gift certificate to Digi Darla's Digital Stamp Store.





A set of Whimsical Designs' stamps..."Everyday Sentiments".


A 2-pack bundle of 3GJ crinkle ribbon.



A 5 piece set of handmade corsage pins.



A $25 gift certificate to her store Paper Piecings by Nikki

Now that your mouth is watering for one of these stellar prizes....take a look at my project.


I made a waterfall card with four Digi's from Digi Darla's, painted them with a free program called "Paint brush" It has a DL for both Windows and Mac! It took minutes to paint with the auto-fil! (It stays in the lines better than I do! LOL!) Although it doesn't paint all the way to the lines, it was to teeninesy too see (at least for my eyes!)
These waterfall cards are pretty COOL!













You can find directions to make this card on YouTube. Just pull the leaf on the bottom and your pics fall like a waterfall and my images were perfect for Spring (don't ya think!) I stamped in SPRING! All the rest of the embellies were in my stash also. I've had them so long, I don't even remember where they came from but I am sure I needed them at the time! LOL!

Digi Darla has not only sponsored the awesome gift certificate...but she has allowed each stop to offer the image used as blog candy!!
